Updated: Overturned Truck Snarls Route 202 Traffic

The tractor trailer was hauling chicken legs when it crashed in West Goshen.

Update 9:15pm: The tractor trailer has just been removed from the scene, reports Abel Brothers.

Update 7pm: Based on PennDOT camera images, traffic is flowing again, but the truck has not been moved.

Original story continues below

The afternoon rush became much worse than usual Thursday when a tractor trailer crashed in the northbound lanes of Route 202 at Matlack Avenue in West Goshen. 

Traffic on Route 202 is backed up in both directions around the truck, which is mostly off in the woods on the side of the road.

According to towing, the 18-ton truck was hauling chicken legs. The trailer broke open in the crash, so its contents must be unloaded by hand before the truck can be righted, which could take up to four hours.

[Edited 9pm to correct the truck's weight from 70,000 to 36,000 pounds, and clarify that it was carrying chicken legs.]
